What is the City’s long-term plan for replacing these lines?

The City has a two-prong plan to proactively address potential water main breaks. We gather and analyze data on main breaks to project what sections show a propensity to break and prioritize replacement based on that. Our Maintenance division performs routine pipe replacement, blocks at a time and uses city crews and small works contractors. Our Engineering division develops those projects with a larger scope, fitting them into our Capital Improvement Program. The current Water Main Q project project from Pacific to 35th on Broadway Avenue is an example of one of these larger water main replacement projects.
